A Comparative View of Religions
Jan Hendrik Scholten (17 August 1811 – 10 April 1885), Dutch Protestant theologian, was born at Vleuten near Utrecht.

After studying at Utrecht University, he was appointed professor of theology in 1840 at Franeker.[1] From Franeker in 1843 he went to Leiden as professor extraordinarius, and in 1845 was promoted to the rank of ordinarius. Through Scholten, Abraham Kuenen became interested in theology; Scholten was not then the radical theologian he became later. The two scholars in course of time created a movement resembling that of the Tübingen School in Germany. From his theology there "began to rise a different type of spirit, the spirit of absolute antisupernaturalism of the German idealistic kind."[1]
